The British Archaeological Association holds regular monthly lectures on the first Wednesday of each month between October and May in the rooms of the Society of Antiquaries of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BE.

Please note: However, it may be that precautions against the spread of Covid-19 make this impossible, in which case the lectures will be given online. Details on a lecture-by-lecture basis will be posted on the BAA website.

At the Society of Antiquaries of London: Tea is served from 4.30 p.m. and the Chair is taken at 5.00 p.m.
